Favorite Handi Hunting Caliber for Big Game?

Well mine is the 308 Winchester. For selection of bullet weights, trajectory and Dow range energy it is hard to beat. Everything from 125 grain Dear loads to 180 grain Elk loads it will deliver.

Mark me down for .308 for all round big game.

I'd say my .45-70 only because it's my favorite rifle.  I have a .30-30 Handi I've never shot because the front sight is messed up.  I'm about ready to pull off that new target knob peep I put on it and scope it.  I think it has the potential of being my next favorite deer gun.

I won't complain here (much) about the futility of hunting black tail deer...

My favorite would be 45-70 hands down.

I wish I had one of my Model 70s in 30-06 back. But I don't.
1st Corinthians Chapter 11, Verse 28. But let a man EXAMINE HIMSELF, and so let him eat of "that " bread, and drink of "that" cup.

It doesn't really matter how you "think" it is, but how it ACTUALLY is.
